was reportedly livid about the surveillance and called president obama to register her displeasure. but the spying may have begun as far back as 2002, the early days of the bush administration, before merkel even became chancellor. and that timeline makes this clip from 2006 even creepier! i can't help but wonder if bush had gotten a tip from the nsa about how merkel mentioned on the phone she enjoyed the occasional back rub. here's the craziest part about this whole thing, it's not that we were tapping the german chancellor's phones, which is not necessarily that surprising, even though it involved an ally, it is that, apparently, president obama did not know we were doing it, according to a report from the "wall street journal" out today. the spying on merkel was part of the massive surveillance operation put in place by president george w. bush after the september 11th attacks, which members of the bush administration continue to defend to this day. >> we do have a fantastic intelligence capability worldwide against all kinds of potential issues and concerns. we are vulnerable,

, administrations. here's a few minutes on that discussion focusing on the 2009 bush-obama transition. 2009,the beginning of there was a missed opportunity. the fiscal stimulus was needed. i just wonder if a different kind of stimulus, with some of the changes larry headed at, dropping the high-speed rail and energy, might have gotten bipartisan support. today people say republicans will oppose anything obama suggests, that back in the beginning of 2009, many people were really hoping that this guy was bringing us together, and it did not happen. there will be false on both sides, but that is the question, could a different set of choices brought the country together in a way that did not happen? >> i have been critical of some of the more classically the credit parts of the recovery program. but i was there. saidenate minority leader that the basic purpose of his minority leadership was to make sure that the president was not reelected. i think it is not easy to make the case that people in the it ministration were prepared to walk a long mile to get , so i thinksupport it would have been much
, everybody. we asked and you answered, the question being should president obama have swapped out vice president biden for hillary clinton. no, biden has been the go to guy for dealing with the senate for the administration. no, although i love hillary, she will get her turn in 2016 and she will win. potus made the right call. hillary has plenty of career left. keep it coming on twitter and facebook. if it's friday, it's time to go and do, the spotlight on lives trying to improve others, at risk girls in new hampshire and new england, just how strong they are. for more than a decade girls at work has been putting power tools in their hand and teaching them woodworking skills. elaine, great to have you here. you're a general contractor by trade. explain how you got this idea to pass down a skill set like this to young girls. >> i think it sort of originated, i had taken a neighbor in many years ago. i needed to sign her up for summer camp. at the time as a struggling contractor, i couldn't afford the fee. so an exchange ended up i was offered a chance to teach working in a summer camp.
this rallying cries have intensified in the five years since barack obama raised his right hand and became president of the united states. after all, we didn't hear any of this during the bush administration. no kwqualms about it, there's a racial element to this movement. this resurgence can be seen in the headlines of conservative organizations like heritage action and the family research counc council. it's more than headlines and rhetoric. it's turning into real action at the state level. 20 states have signed laws opting out of the president's health care law. in 37 states laws have been introduced to combat any federal gun legislation. and just this year alone, 30 states have introduced stricter or new voter id laws. joining me now to discuss the history of the resurgence of the states rights movement in this country is sam townhouse "new york times" in the and msnbc contributor james peterson. thank yo thanks to you both. james, when we talk about states rights, people don't realize it's a very dark history. certainly there's the civil war. but then there's also when ronald reagan i

this philosophy during your testimony today, ma'am. obama care was signed into law 1,256 days ago. and since then, there's been user problem after user problem after user problem. regarding, your dputty administrator for consumer information, gary cohen, testified one month ago, where we are sitting, that cms has worked hard to test the infrastructure that will allow americans to enroll in coverage confidently and simply and securely, end quote. and yet according to forbes, and the wall street journal, you told them that you need five years of construction and one year of testing. the program crashed and burned at least three times and the user is still having problems. it's been down the whole time you've been testifying. the system is down at this moment. my question, ma'am is very simple. when did you know these changes were going down? a month, a day, a quarter? and did you tell the president what you knew? >> sir, i was informed that we were ready to launch on october 1st and the contractors who we had as our private partners told us and told this committee that they had never

for obama care and the rollout. you're on the committee that will question kathleen sebelius on wednesday. what does she have to say? how do you think the administration starts to turn this around? >> thank you for having me this morning. i think carl hit the nail on the head a moment ago. the affordable care act is the law of the land, it's fully operational. we have experienced some very difficult glitches with the website. it's embarrassing, but we're going to fix it. there are four components to the website. we had hearings last week and the different vendors testified that each one of these components was working properly, but when they were integrated in an end-to-end test they did not produce the results that we need. so the website has been recalled for repair, but it will be back out the door by november 30th and all of our uninsured americans can then sign up and get ready for full coverage. >> well, if that happens, as you've suggested, as we saw bill clinton suggest, let's talk about the second challenge here, and i want to put up a "new york times" headline. quote, health sit
president obama was briefed on the surveillance of german chancellor angela merkel's phone in 2010 and fast tracked any information gathered correctly to the white house. in the fast few days anonymous administration officials told the u.s. media that was false. and that a white house review only discovered the surveillance of world leaders in the summer. the bugging of merkel's phone ended soon after. for european parliamentary delegation its visit to washington is about more than the bugging of world leaders. it's about the surveillance of 10s of millions of its con stitcconnecticut stitchconstitu. >> trust has to be rebuilt. and what kind of trust needs to be rebuilt. in the end we are fighting a battle in terms of security, we need to get that balance right. we are concerned, too, about security and we made that very clear. but also there is a balance to be struck with privacy of citizens and i think these frank exchange need to rebuild that very important trust. >> reporter: their first meeting, however, was with the house intelligence committee chairman mike rodgers. he says europeans
as being hands off? not only the spying issue but now the glitches on obama care and, you know, repeatedly we keep hearing the president didn't know, didn't know ahead of time. you know, we have been led to believe early in his administration that he was a very hands-on kind of guy. >> yeah, that's a very good question. obviously, the president coming off a big win in terms of the government shutdown. he got a good political bounce out of that. we have a new nbc poll coming out later today -- this evening, in fact, and we might be able to get more answers to that very question later tonight. we'll see if there's been any political damage inflict on the president by this botched rollout, by the spying allegations. you're right. when the white house is reduced to explaining that the president simply had no idea this stuff was going on, it's just not a good position for a white house to be in. they've been on the defensive this week. they said they've expressed support for general alexander earlier in the week. expressed support for kathleen sebelius today. when you're expres
that if the on line system for getting into obama care is rickety, the system for getting out of the mandate doesn't even exist yet. hhs says it will take another month at least for the administration to finalize the forms for the hardship exemption from the individual mandate. why has it taken 3 1/2 years to finalize a simple application form for an exemption from the individual mandate? >> sir, as you know, the individual mandate is not in place until next year. we have made it very clear that if somebody is medicaid eligible in a state that doesn't choose -- >> my last question and my last second. 16 million people in the individual market have or will receive cancellation notices stating their health insurance coverage does not meet minimum coverage requirements of the affordable care act. it grants you the power to determine the criteria for hardship exemption. will you provide all of these individuals a hardship exemption since the affordable care act is taking away their plan? will do you that? >> no, sir. and i think those numbers are far from accurate. 95% of americans who have health ins
is on the administration to do that. >> republicans have been infl t inflicting and reflecting ourselves into fits. the white house, i'm not sure they even recognize how in peril the rest of barack obama's presidency is at this point. the most devastating thing isn't that you lose credibility in your, among your press corps which seems to be happening with obama's pledge that turns out not to be true if you like your plan you can keep it. the most devastating thing to obama's white house isn't that the republicans are united against them. democrats were united against george w. bush for the entirety of his presidency. the most devastating thing for the obama white house is that they are losing credibility among democrats and they are doing that because they are incompetent. not because they are wrong. there are a lot of democrats willing to go along with that. willing to get behind him. he won two presidential elections in a decisive manner. but they have roven that they do not know how to run a competent policy process and proving now that they can't run a political process behind their policy in

. >> this is a court that can rule for or against the executive orders of this administration. >> a court that some people have called the second most important court in the nation. >> it is delivered rebuke after rebuke to the president's agenda. today, the court overturned an obama care provision mandating businesses cover their employees' birth control. this year, it invalidated the president's national labor relations board appointments, making the body nonfunctional. last year, it struck down epa rules on air pollution. all of that from this one court. now, republicans filibustering a nominee isn't new. what is new and dangerous is the reason. you see, the d.c. appellate court has 11 seats, three of those seats are now vacant. and the judges who are there reliablely deliver conservative rulings. if the president could appoint one judge, it would tip the court's balance. if he could fill all three vacancies, it would transform the court and all of american justice. but republicans are now saying that democrats can appoint no one to fill those vacancievacan. in fact, they are now saying that app

, the administration went too fast too far. they wanted to get the green energy initiative out, that was one of the big platforms of president obama, but they did it -- it's almost like the health care rollout. they really didn't do the correct research, and the chinese swooped in, and they're killing us -- bill: they are? >> absolutely. cheaper and faster without the regulations that we have -- bill: so when it comes to the industry of solar power, there are winners -- >> sure. bill: a lot of losers, but apparently it's beijing. >> exactly. they're making all of the cash. and look, overall solar and wind is still a minute, small part of overall energy production. we still run on oil, natural gas. that is not going to change for the next 20 years. but what the rollout of the epa initiatives, in my opinion, was the problem was that they didn't effectively look at the cost, the environmental costs which is what we're finding out today with this study on this colorado plant and abound solar, but they didn't look at the long-term financial implication of cleaning up solar production. and americans don't wa

, the obama administration launched its health care exchange. this was to be the biggest moment of the president's signature achievement in office. it's one that people were looking for years to the opening of the exchanges, and i would just say, mr. president, it flopped. it completely flopped. the web site crashed, and it fell right on the heads of the people who were already anxious about their health care, people all across the country saw this collapse and even the late-night comedians have made a lot of jokes about the incompetence and mismanagement of the obama administration. but, mr. president, i have to tell you that the failure of the exchapping is no laughing matter because this is much more than a failed web site u real people who are facing real health care problems are being hurt because of this administration's failed health care law. because of this law, millions of people are getting letters saying that their insurance has been canceled, and i've talked to some of them this past weekend in wyoming. at least 3.5 million across the country and the number continue
of the obama administration paid off, because in early august of this year, right after congress got out of town for the august recess, conveniently right after congress left the scene of the crime, the obama administration issued a special rule with no basis in the law, in my opinion, no basis in the obamacare statute. and this special rule is a special exemption for congress, a carveout to take all of the financial sting out of that obamacare section. and what this special o.p.m. rule is -- and, again, o.p.m., the office of personnel management, was the agency that came up with this illegal rule after this furious lobbying, after president obama became personally involved, literally personally participated in the discussions leading to this rule -- what this illegal rule does is essentially two things. first of all, the rule says, well, official congressional staff. we don't know who that is. we can't possibly determine who official congressional staff is so we're going to leave it up to each individual member of congress to figure out who their official staff are. well, mr. president,
